Day 156 Weebles wobble but they don’t fall down!

Ok so how many of you remember Weebles?!?

Watch the Weebles commercial by clicking the link below!! A trip down memory lane…

Weebles Commercial

I’ve often referred to myself as a Weeble in the last few years of suffering from anxiety and depression. I’ve put on weigh hence the larger body size but while I might have lots of wobbles, I don’t actually ever fall down as a weeble just rolls back up!

Lesley one of the lovely crochet bunch must have picked up on this at some point as yesterday she gave me my very own weeble that she got from eBay!!

He actually seems so much smaller than I remember but he’s my new mascot as whatever life throws at me I won’t fall down and just keep bouncing back
So much sexier than a weeble but hey I like that analogy!
This has been on my mind for a few days…. there are a few things I miss from my previous life but I know why I had to move on and why they weren’t good for me
Aye aye sir!
So very true
I love this….. it’s beautiful and very wise

A lazy start to the day but we must have needed it. Didn’t wake until 8.25am. How is it that in rat race I used to survive with 7 hours sleep max a night, up at 5.30am every morning and not be as tired as I am now?!? Maybe just catching up on all those years of 9-13 hour working days???!

So finally at the back of 10 I started Pawsitive Solutions calls and then headed out with the dogs about 12.

Mean and moody this morning but still quite mild
Having a LONG sniff half way up the road!
Not the best pic of our wee Freya dinks but she’s been running about crazy
The “pet” cows are back in the field behind the village hall for the first time this year. They are beautiful (if you can say that about cows?!) check the horns on that one… just like the emoji!!! 🐮🐮
Reluctantly heading home!
I find a real strength in speaking my truth now

So lovely Claire next door is on holiday this week so we made a last minute plan to grab a cuppa!

We went to Gro Coffee in Irvine on the shore front!
I had Jamaican tacos which were amazing!
Claire had the largest toastie in the world and despite trying her utmost best to eat it she almost didn’t dent it!!!

Interesting to learn the price of my coffee once we got the bill. Not sure if I’ve said before but I’m not drinking real cow milk anymore as I don’t like the taste of it so I had a coconut milk latte. Now I am not gonna lie…. it was exquisite! Honestly one of the best coconut milk coffees I have ever tasted…. but boy did I pay the price!!

£8.60 for 2 coffees 🙈

Thats £4.30 each coffee 🙊

£3.30 for the latte and £1.20 for the coconut milk 😱 for each coffee!!!!!

I can get a whole carton of Coconut milk for a max of £1.80. Wow. Now I was shocked but it was very good. Just very expensive!

COVID-19 guidelines on each table

The 2m social distancing wasn’t really possible and their tables are way closer together than next door in the pub. It was the loveliest wee trip out and so unexpected. I would like to add that I did not buy any cakes to bring home as I can’t eat them if I don’t buy them… one small step for Julesie!!!

Abbie at the beach… sadly you can neither really see Abbie or the beach!!!
We drove down to the seafront but the tide was out and yet so calm, it was raining though so we didn’t stay out long
Huge beach in Irvine
Girls wee afternoon out!
Close up on Steven Seagull….. I so wanted to make that joke but I now see he is a swan…. 🤦🏻‍♀️
🤣🤣

Back home and more calls and started the blog and all of a sudden it’s 7.20pm.

I’ve had a good day. I’ve realised that certain things in life are tests. Triggers to which I need no longer react to and every day is a learning curve.

I’m still constantly thinking of a new name for the blog and when I get the right one I’ll know it.

Think the rest of the evening is going to involve joining up Craig’s blanket squares! He says no pressure to have it ready fo our wee break away but I would like to. Just not enough hours in the day…. how did I ever manage time to work?!?! 🤦🏻‍♀️🤷🏻‍♀️

Stay safe everyone 😷🩲😷

    1. It’s just coconut milk alternative to real milk and it’s strangely not as coconutty as it sounds!! Go look up Weebles!!! X
